I’m always on the lookout for ways to make money. And since we all work so hard for the money we earn, it’s also nice to come across simple ways to save, too. So, when I come across easy ways to earn a little extra cash that can also help rack up savings, I’m especially excited to share. One of the easiest ways to do both is by joining refer a friend programs for your favorite brands and products that you already use. Depending on the program, this could amount to a nice chunk of change each year or cut down on the costs of using those products or services each month.

It’s a well-established fact that proofreading your writing can be a very painful task. People who write for a living—as well as anyone who has to write important emails or assignments—can tell you that proofreading your work before you turn it in or press send is essential. With proofreading, every little bit of help is welcome. The autocorrect and spell-check tools most word processors have are great, but they only amount to a single line of defense.
Maven Xchange lets people earn money by recommending products and services to other people. Those who love to shop, can now monetize their skill in an easy, natural way. Many people are calling it the Pinterest of Affiliate Marketing and with good reason. I believe that everyone is an expert at something. The experienced mother of four who recommends to her friend, and soon to be first-time mother, safe baby products to buy. The college student who is commonly hit up for fashion advice because of her stylish yet thrifty outfits. The tech enthusiast who knows exactly what to buy to create the ideal ‘smart home’.
There are lots of folks out there talking about making money online. I mean– I can’t even get through my Facebook news feed these days without seeing an advertisement of some rando with a big cheesy smile talking about their life changing webinar… and LOTS of people running around calling themselves gurus and influencers. Even worse and more confusing, there are lots of blogging “experts” that only make money blogging about making money blogging
There are a lot of great resources out there for finding writing jobs, but you have to spend time sorting through them to find the ones you’re a good fit for. That’s assuming you know all the right places to look.
It can be tedious and frustrating, especially when you realize that the time you spent looking for work could have been spent on writing. Similar to FlexJobs (a popular, membership-based site for people looking to work at home) there is a fee to access. You can read the review below and decide if you think it’s worth it for you.
There is a lot of discussion online on whether you can “really” make money taking surveys. You can. I don’t know of anyone that actually makes a full time income doing it – but you can certainly get paid to take surveys. I personally have made quite a bit of money doing surveys and when I find cash running short (almost always!!!) – I know that surveys are a way that I can “get in there” and make a little extra money. I just keep earning points or cash and know that this is money I am setting aside for something particular. I can typically make anywhere from $200 to $400 a month doing surveys.
There are people who enjoy working out, and then there’s me… I require a little extra motivation. 😉 I don’t work out nearly as much myself as I want to, but if someone were dangling free money in my face you can bet your ass I’d be out that door before even finishing this post. There are lots of websites and apps out there that will help you track your eating and log your miles. However, these programs are typically the most useful for those individuals who have a great internal drive or commitment to healthy living. Or at very least, the motivation to remember to log in and stick to the plan.
